  1. Goodbye

    FT: Saracens 28-20 Exeter

    Saracens

    That brings our live text commentary of today's Premiership final to a close.

    What a day it has been for Saracens, becoming the third English club to complete a European and domestic double, after Leicester in 2001 and Wasps in 2004.

    Sarries are also the first club to retain the Premiership title since Leicester in 2010.

    Exeter came close to the first top-flight title in their 145-year history but were denied despite a second-half fightback.

    Rugby also bids farewell to the Premiership's all-time top points scorer Charlie Hodgson, who couldn't add to his total of 2,623 career points today.

    What a season it's been - and it starts all over again in September. Thanks for joining us today and, until next time, goodbye.

  2. Recap

    FT: Saracens 28-20 Exeter

    Jim Hamilton

    Saracens beat Exeter Chiefs to win the Premiership final and become the first English side to complete a domestic and European double since 2004.

    Exeter, in their first play-off final, were blown away by a faultless first half from Sarries, who led 23-6 through Duncan Taylor and Chris Wyles scores.

    Jack Yeandle and Jack Nowell crossed after the break as a rejuvenated Chiefs reduced the deficit to three points.

    But Alex Goode's late try secured the title for the defending champions.
